Now this is ridiculous. Hotmail won't open in IE 6, but works fine in Firefox!

I agree with ur prev post that IE 7.0 is s#it, but dont u think u r goin too far in just trying to prove ur point... Any given day, I'll prefer IE6 + XP SP2 to ur Fancy Firefox.

Buddy, I still worship Microsoft. I still believe it's the greatest software company in the world. I still wanna work on Microsoft technologies. I'm still loyal to Microsoft Corp.

I didn't try to prove any point in this post. Just that it's surprising that Hotmail is/was failing to load properly in IE.

I would still choose IE over FF anyday. But I love the freedom of choice. I love Microsoft learning some vital lessons from the open source community.

IE 7 has learnt many vital lessons from FF. So use FF or not, you've got to be thankful to the Mozilla community for helping IE measure up!

All this talk of Firefox makes me want to try it out. I'm perfectly happy with IE and never thought of swapping but you give FF so much attention that my curiousity is about to triumph

You just don't know what you're missing! Give FF a try, you won't regret it. At least your browser window will look slicker and different!

Revert to me for suggestions on extensions (tiny bits of code used to extend funtionality) or any other help.

The year that was

I'm wearing a rather striking shirt, one that makes me feel like a clown fooling around in a graveyard. Roving eyes latch on to me and make me too conscious of myself. Checkered in red, grey, black and maroon, I've excused myself into donning it and looking silly for two reasons. It's Friday and…more importantly, the last working day of the year. Tailored half-a-year back, I never had the courage to wear it, not until today. It's that time of the year when it's time to reflect on the events that transpired. Last year ended on the worst possible note. Dad had expired and I was numb with shock. The repercussions rippled halfway thought this year. Things were so abysmal initially that I had lost the will to live. Acrid in everything I did, I was immensely angered by time phlegmatically flowing through its cadence. It was as if Dad meant nothing to anybody. What right did people have to live the way they always had when Dad was no more? Why was much of the world still

Post Christmas

The workday didn't have the sweetest of starts. After being made to wait for almost half-an-hour for breakfast in the cafeteria, I was told only when I enquired that there could be no omelette since the heater wasn't working properly. I lost my temper and aired my annoyance not because the heater was out-of-order but because I was needlessly made to wait for something that was just not about to happen. The onus was on them to intimate me and they failed to own up to their responsibility. I find this attitude very irksome. Anyway, the rest of the day was smooth sailing except for a minor glitch that had to be rectified just when I was about to head for lunch. The bay was mostly deserted since most of my colleagues had volunteered for a training. I'm self-taught...thus my being an exception to the mass exodus! Nilotpal is on a fortnight-long leave and I missed him dearly today.
I'm learning the hard way not to trust anyone. Even the one you revere the most may be scheming your downfall. By no stretch of imagination may this seem logical, but who said imagination is limitless?
